    In my naivete (and poverty), I have just now begun to search for a couple of nucs for this year's season. Weaver, Purvis Brothers, and others I've checked are out for the seasons. Any recommendations for a reputable source that still can ship me some nucs?
    Thanks,

    I've never been good at this myself, but I would say: Wait.

    The price goes down, and availability goes up, as the weather gets warmer. You'll have to give up on a honey crop this year, but that's not guaranteed anyway.

    Georges Apiary in Noble, OK still has a few nucs available. The nucs will have Russian queens from Purvis Bros. George does not ship, but you can drive about 100 mile and pick them up.George's telephone is 405-872-8385.

    You can try buckeyebee.com. That's where I got mine--and they have small cell bees, if you're interested.
